Virat Kohli has shattered many records in his illustrious career. Now, as India prepares to lock horns with Australia in the fourth ODI in Ranchi, the Indian cricket captain is just 33 runs away from joining the elite list of cricketers comprising MS Dhoni, Sourav Ganguly and Mohammad Azharuddin. If Kohli manages to score 27 runs in Ranchi, he will be the 12th cricketer to get past the 4000-run mark. He will be only the fourth captain to get this feat.

Kohli has so far scored 3973 runs as he led the Indian team. MS Dhoni had scored 6641 runs as the Indian skipper in the shorter format of the game. Azharuddin and Ganguly had 5239 and 5104 runs respectively to their name as an Indian ODI skipper. Talking about the match today, the hosts already enjoy an invincible lead of 2-0 in the five-game series. A win today would mean that the hosts would walk away with the series. All eye will be on MS Dhoni who is possibly playing his last match in his hometown Ranchi. MS Dhoni Meets Fans Ahead of Ind vs Aus 3rd ODI 2019; Obliges Fans With Autographs, Selfies Ahead of Possible Hometown Farewell (Watch Video).
